1 noch co-ordinating conj., folld. by absol. form of vb., con-
fined to O.Ir. and early Mid.Ir. periods.
(a) in the Glosses (Wb. and Sg., somet. in Ml.) used to intro-
duce an admitted fact which is in contrast with or opposition
60to something preceding, but, however, and yet ; oft. strengthened
by a particle like ém, immurgu: dodcad do chách leo-som
noch is doib-som a dodced sidi they deem (their wrong-doing)
a misfortune to all and yet the misfortune of it is their own
(recoils on themselves)
, Wb. 2b3 . is follus isindí nachim-
65rindarpai-se noch ǽm am ísrahélde, 5a18 (gl. numquid repulit
Deus populum suum? absit; nam et ego Israhelita sum). cid dia
n-epir-som aní-siu? noch ni rabatar ind ḟir so riam fo recht
fetarlicce, 19d11 (gl. quomodo convertemini iterum ad infirma?
a question addressed to the Galatians, implying that they had
70been formerly under the Law, though they really had never
been). Cf. 19c6 . amal no bed noch ní fail as though it were;
but it is not
, Sg. 32a1 . noch ní cóir son acht corop . . . issed as
chóir, 40b7 . amal bid tar ǽsi n-uilc huaim-se [sic leg.] friu-
som noch immurgu ní robae huaim-se a n-olc n-isin, Ml. 74a2
75(gl. quasi non inferrent mala sed redderent). Cf. 38b2 . oen-
t[ṡ]ēt coel tairiss, noch ba si a chonair, RC xi 446.58 ( Toch.
Emire § 65 ) = ┐ ba si, ZCP iii 249. co ticceth ind ian beoss,
noch ba trait donicceth, ba coirm aní no bith isin lothur by the
time the pitcher returned [from distributing ale], though it re-
80turned quickly, what was in the trough was brewed

dotet indala epscop do guidi dond rígh. `Noch ní tiber do
neuch' ar ind rí but I will grant [that boon] to none, 11.1 .
85(b) in Ml. used generally with follg. cop. to introduce a
synonym or explanation, that is to say ( = Lat. id est): noch is
conaccertus-sa ón (gl. psalterium . . . emendaveram), 2a1 . noch
is ind foircthi són (gl. studiosi), 16b4 . noch is asindet-som
buith doib i ndoiri that is, he declares them to be in captivity
(explaining the vb. Lat. inducit), 108b6 . lase no silaigid noch is
5asn-indid[id] a adamrae when ye sow, that is, when ye declare
his wonder
, 115b11 (gl. adserendo, analysed as compd. of
Lat. serere `to sow'). Cf. also 19a14 , 23a20 , 35b6 , and the similar
use of sech is.
In Laws (text) used in much the same way to introduce an
10explanatory or defining clause: tobert a chin forsin fer batair
bech, noch is i breth inso bretha la Ultu `and this is the judge-
ment
', Laws iv 178.15 . ro suidiged . . . la log a tomalta . . . noch is ed
log tomalta ro suidiged dō, set beisid fiu `now the price of waste
which has been fixed for it is a "sed" of the same value
